Led by experienced storytellers

Researched in specialized archives

We give tours, events, and storytelling performances about people who’ve impacted Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and the wider world. We want to entertain and inspire both visitors and locals!

On our tours, we tell short stories about historical figures at sites associated with them. Guests get a sense of the city’s history while seeing iconic Amsterdam spots through a new lens.

For events, such as Museum Night or city games, we do site-specific performances that engage viewers in a busy environment. Our performances are longer-form storytelling that interweave multiple historical stories, sometimes with modern personal ones.
